The cut of a diamond is all about its proportions, symmetry, and polish - the factors that make it sparkle and shine. When you visit Midwest Jewelers, our experts will show you how a well-cut diamond can enchant and captivate, while a poorly cut one may appear lackluster. We'll explain why cut quality is often considered the most critical aspect of a diamond's beauty and how it directly impacts its fire, brightness, and scintillation.
Diamond color refers to its natural hue, which can range from colorless to slightly yellow or brown. Our team at Midwest Jewelers will walk you through the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) color grading scale from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow or brown). We'll help you understand how subtle differences in color can affect a diamond's value and appearance, ensuring you choose the perfect hue for your taste and budget.
Diamond clarity is all about the inclusions (internal flaws) and blemishes (external imperfections) that can be found within or on a diamond's surface. Our skilled staff will use a jeweler's loupe to show you the various types of inclusions and blemishes and explain the GIA clarity grading scale. We'll help you determine the right clarity grade for your needs, balancing beauty and value.
- Carat Weight
Carat weight refers to the size of a diamond, with one carat equal to 0.2 grams. At Midwest Jewelers, we'll demonstrate how carat weight can affect a diamond's price and overall appearance. We'll also discuss the importance of balancing carat weight with the other 3 Cs to find a diamond that meets your expectations and budget.
At Midwest Jewelers, we believe that understanding the 4 Cs of diamonds is crucial to making an informed decision.
